But Ranbir is sick and tired of one aspect of his promotional activities: the constant questions about his love life.
He would rather talk about his work, not his hook-ups. Fair enough, we think.
"My motive is to let my film talk. I don't tell others to write about my affairs nor do I decide it," said Ranbir at a recent promo event. "I work hard. In Barfi! also I have worked hard."
"If your question is 'How did I feel working with Anurag Basu', then I will respect you. But if you ask me questions like 'Why did I not have an affair with Ileana?', then you will lose respect. So I'd like you to ask me questions about my work, not about my affairs," said the 29-year-old.
Ileana, too, has had to field a few uncomfortable questions, like her pay check for example.
Reports claim she is the highest paid actress in the southern film industry. But Ileana feels she can't comment on that because she "has not seen anyone else's pay checks."
What Ileana did say with certainty, however, is that she has worked really hard for six years down south.
"The journey has not been easy for me, and so I feel what I get paid, I completely deserve it," said the actress.
Now how about some question about her Hindi film debut, Barfi!?
